september after a hard-fought election. paul ryan is now speaking out for the first time. he says he is ready to reach across the aisle. >> it's part of my job to be a part of the solution to try to make this divided government work because the issues we talked about seven days ago are still the issues we have to deal with today, the economy, a debt crisis. we have got a health care system problem. i worry about our military. these same problems exist and we'll have to find a way of finding common ground to make them work. martha: paul ryan who hoped to be vice president of the united states come january, now finds himself in his congressional seat still in wisconsin and says he has got his work cut out for him. stuart varney joins me. host of the "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, your thoughts, first of all on what ryan had to say there? >> can i drag this back to what you called, martha, a dire warning and it is a dire warning and that was talked about by paul ryan right there. the dire warning is from moody's. they rate our debt. they say whether this debt is
close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welcome news. how does he handle the meeting with the business leaders today some. >> i wasn't there. they didn't invite me. i'm not a business leader. >> you think he has a clear -- i won't say mandate but the
